Discover where your strengths lie. The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Flexible First Year) allows you to commence your studies with core subjects before transferring into your engineering stream of choice at the end of your first semester or year. You will still complete your engineering degree in the normal time (four years).
The Flexible First Year Program allows you to explore different engineering disciplines before deciding upon your ultimate course of study. You will undertake a common set of units before transferring into your preferred stream. The Bachelor of Engineering Honours can be undertaken in the following streams: Aeronautical, Biomedical, Chemical and Biomolecular, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Mechatronic, and Software. You will be required to achieve a minimum grade point average before transferring into your desired stream. This requirement applies to the Aeronautical, Biomedical, Mechatronic and Software streams.
In all streams you will undertake a mandatory 10-12 week industry placement, plant and site visits, and enjoy opportunities for the development of significant professional relationships with industry partners. An embedded honours thesis or research project will allow you to further specialise in an area of your interest. You will also have the option to complete one or more majors throughout your degree, choosing from more than 15 different options, depending on your stream.
With an enormous variety of careers in innovative and emerging fields spanning the aerospace, biomedical, computing, construction, environmental, mining and telecommunications industries, the time is right to embrace a future in engineering.
